|CCRIF/Swiss Re - Excess Rainfall Product||
Since 2008, CCRIF has been engaged in research towards the development of an excess rainfall product for the Caribbean Region. This has been in direct response to the interest expressed by many CCRIF participating countries and stakeholder partners in making available catastrophe flood coverage. The CCRIF/Swiss Re Excess Rainfall (XSR) Product has been developed to address some of the losses associated with heavy rain. The product is aimed primarily at extreme high rainfall events of short duration (a few days).
